High-End Windows & Doors for Your Home

Although many homeowners are understandably concerned about the aesthetic value of their homes, this should not be the most important consideration when choosing new doors and windows. Low-quality windows and doors can be a substantial drain on a homeowner's wallet and can even create a weak point in the structure of the home. A cheaply manufactured or poorly installed window or door can result in structural damage and cause tremendous energy inefficiency. As with all building projects, a little extra money invested up front can go a long, long way.

How to Find a High Quality Window

Quality windows don't compromise. They effectively blend style, energy efficiency, and durability with these three components:

  • Framing. No matter what framing material is used, a good quality window frame will feature top of the line aesthetic choices in finishes and colors to match the interior and exterior of the home. Some high-end window manufacturers offer a combination of framing, so homeowners can have vinyl on the exterior, and rich wood finishing on the interior.

  • Edge Glazing. A good quality window will have quality edge glazing. The edge glazing and spacing is responsible for providing a moisture barrier, accommodating thermal expansion, and sealing in energy while preventing condensation. Advanced systems in edge glazing will maintain the durability of the window and will never leak.

  • Glass. The window itself will be high quality glass. Energy Star rated windows are tested to ensure they are energy efficient, using a U-Factor rating system. This system measures how much heated or cooled air escapes through the pane of a window. The lower the number, the better.

How to Find a High Quality Door

A high-quality door should have similar characteristics to a good window, but much more is expected from the functionality of a door. It should have the following traits:

  • Highly customized, high performance materials in a variety of finishes. A good door will be professionally hand stained, then cured to increase durability. The door will be customized to fit the home in a way that allows its beauty to stand out.

  • Ability to withstand a variety of elements. Whether it is an entry door, patio door, or storm door, it should offer treated glass and advanced technology in hinging, end capping, and sealing. Insulated glass should be laminated to protect against wind-borne damage and UV rays. Hinges should be made of heavy-duty materials to resist corrosion, and the trim should be durable as well.

  • Availability of impact protection options. In areas that are especially susceptible to wind damage and storms, a high quality door should offer some degree of impact protection. Impact shield doors are designed to resist heavy hurricane winds and can even deter break-ins.

  • Warranties. Both windows and doors should come with a manufacturer warranty against sealant failures and glass breakage, so that if any damage occurs, a homeowner’s investment is protected.


High Quality Doors and Windows Save You Money

Energy Star Certified doors and windows keep your home energy efficient and may offer tax incentives. They cut down on heated and cooled air loss, and can save homeowners up to $465 annually on energy costs. Additionally, homeowners may receive up to 10% in tax credits for the cost of purchasing Energy Star windows and doors.


Good Contractors Can Help You Make the Best Decision

A contractor that provides high-end options for doors and windows will be well versed in all available options. A good contractor like Top Quality Contractors can give customized recommendations for the customer. We will take into account the location of the home to determine durability standards needed for that area. We can tell if an Impact Shield door is necessary for the home, and suggest additional features that may increase the value and durability of doors and windows. Additionally, we can assist customers in making cosmetic decisions to match the desired aesthetic.

Stay Away From Shoddy Workmanship

Improper installation and low-grade materials can lead to a disaster. Homeowners should be open to investing a little extra money up front so as not to have to deal with costly repairs in the long run. A door that is not installed properly can result in an array of problems. Hinges can corrode, doors can swell and damage the frame, and untreated glass can break easily letting elements and unwanted guests into the home. High quality products and a high quality installation from Top Quality Contractors will look beautiful and protect the home for years to come.
